There are tons of fun ways to get the yellow out of the dandelions – so let’s check it out!

How To Make Your Cute Little Slug

  1. Download the Template – The free PDF for this guy is at the bottom of the article
  2. Gather the Dandelions – Give your kids/students a bin and have them forage around for dandelion heads. Don’t take too many from one area – leave some for the bees.
  3. Pick the Tools – Leave this open ended! Will they grab a rock? A log to roll the color out? Or maybe they’ll just smash it with their fingers (it feels cool!)
  4. Paint the Banana Slug Yellow! – If you are doing this project on concrete, you may want to consider giving each kiddo a thin piece of cardboard/paperboard so they don’t accidently rub a hole through their paper.
  5. Color + Add Details –
